What is Cybersecurity Protection?

Cybersecurity Protection is the protection of computer systems and networks from information disclosure, theft, or damage to their hardware, software, or electronic data.

Save Your Business Before You Face a Data Breach

Managed cybersecurity services allow companies to assess risks, strengthen defenses, and monitor systems for a multi-layered approach. With so much at stake in online security, PCS offers several solutions to be proactive.

Why Do You Need Cybersecurity Help?

In an evolving digital landscape, cybersecurity allows you to take preventive measures to defend computer systems, networks, and data that contain highly sensitive information from thefts and damages.

Organizations of all sizes in every industry need protection from cyberattacks, unauthorized access attempts, and computer breaches. 

At PCS, we offer and manage cybersecurity products to help your company stay protected and prevent malicious attacks.

Costs of Cyber Attacks & Effects of a Breach

A cyberattack can financially impact your business for years. In 2022, IBM conducted a study that pinpointed the cost of data breaches at $9.44 million in the United States, making it the country with the highest average cost of data breaches.

Layered Security

Layered security is a network security approach that deploys multiple security controls to protect the most vulnerable areas of your technology environment where a breach or cyberattack could occur.

Having a layered security approach to cybersecurity will help protect and prevent companies from experiencing any data breaches with several layers, with each layer providing an additional defense. These layers include:

The goal for layered security is simple – to make it much harder for a hacker to get into a network or even the network perimeter. At PCS, we offer and manage cybersecurity products through our managed IT services to help your business stay protected against malicious attacks.

What is Phishing Training?

Phishing is a cybercrime in which target or targets are contacted by someone posing as a legitimate institution to lure individuals into providing personally identifiable information.

Phishing has become the costliest type of breach leading to $4.91 million on average according to IBM Reports.

When it comes to phishing attacks, two different types of tactics can be used for a malicious attack:

Phishing

This method uses a broad-stroke approach, sending bulk emails to massive lists of unsuspecting contacts.  Phishing doesn’t aim for a specific target but hopes that a target will just go in and fall for the bait that lies within the email. 

Spear Phishing This type of phishing is targeted and personalized to a specific individual, group, or organization. Cybercriminals send emails to specific and well-researched targets while acting to be a trusted sender. The goal is to either infect devices with malware or convince their victims to hand over information or money.

Phishing Training educates employees on how to spot and report suspected phishing attempts to protect themselves and the company from cybercriminals, hackers, and other bad actors who want to disrupt and steal from your organization.

When an attacker makes a phishing attempt, they send fraudulent messages to trick you into sharing your passwords, credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, and money.

Phishing training will help you and your employees:
  • Recognize fear tactics like urgent deadlines and intimidation
  • Watch for typos, incorrect sender email addresses, and inconsistent information
  • Report scams to PCS promptly
